Happy Days and Hot Chocolate

Anyone who is old as Merkel Marmaduke will remember the "Happy Days" TV series. What I did not remember was that the tough guy of the series, "Fonzie" was a hot chocolate fan and was thought to be dead in one episode. This is revealed in the following transcript from the series available at

Fonzie's Funeral: Part 2 (1979)

[Lenny Kosnowski, a US Treasury Agent, informs the Cunninghams that Fonzie has been killed - unaware that Fonzie is making hot chocolate in their kitchen]
Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli: Hey, you want some hot chocolate?
Lenny Kosnowski: No thanks, I'm on duty.
Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli: Too bad, I like those little marshmellows.
[Kosnowski does a double take]
Lenny Kosnowski: You!
Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli: Me!
Lenny Kosnowski: You're alive!
Arthur 'Fonzie' Fonzarelli: What was your first clue?
